    Hi everyone,

    I was just wanting to know at what age I would be able to start sexing my Pekin Bantam chicks.
    They are currently 3-4 weeks old and they are mottled and spangled.

    Thank you :)

    you'll know which ones are the roosters in a few more weeks as their comb and wattles will get big and red

    I've had a look at them and have had a guess by looking at the side and colour of their combs.
    I think there are 3 hens and 2 roos. One mottle roo and one spangle roo.

    I'm guessing these are the two boys.
